Stanley Kubrick’s stunning near-future sci-fi features a sadistic gang-leader who whiles away evenings with his droogs in the Korova Milkbar before embarking on terrorising rampages. What will the authorities do about him? Contrasting the violence of the individual with that of state control, this dark satire has more bite than anything else in Kubrick’s oevre and subsequently suffered from distribution problems at the time of release.
"What our nightmares have accustomed us to see in dreams, Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange shows us in broad daylight. It is one of the most unsettling films in the whole of cinema." - The Evening Standard
